However, when you compare the new Porsche Macan vs. Audi Q5 in-depth, you’ll discover that the Macan maintains an edge over the Q5 across the board. Learn more with the team at Rusnak/Pasadena below!

Macan vs. Q5: Performance

The base-level engine on both the Macan and Q5 is a 2.0L I-4 generating 248 hp, 273 lb-ft of torque, and featuring a 7-speed automatic transmission. While both models boast a standard all-wheel drivetrain, it’s the Macan that ultimately rises to the top with a base top track speed of 141 mph, compared to just 130 mph with the Audi Q5.

Both the Macan and Q5 are built to assist you with bringing your equipment from Arcadia to Glendale with highly capable towing capacities. Here, the Porsche has a slight edge with a 4,409-pound maximum capacity compared to 4,400 pounds for the Q5. Other differences you’ll want to note include:

  • Fuel tank capacity 
    • Porsche Macan – 19.8 gallons
    • Audi Q5 – 18.5 gallons
  • Maximum ground clearance 
    • Porsche Macan – 9.0 inches (with air suspension)
    • Audi Q5 – 8.2 inches

But of course, only the 2020 Porsche Macan is available with a twin-turbocharged 3.0L V6 engine that produces 434 horsepower. If you want to enjoy the most thrilling performance, you’ll have to reach for top-trim Porsche Macan models.

Macan vs. Q5: Standard Features

When comparing the Porsche Macan vs. Audi Q5, it’s clear that both these advanced SUVs offer a long list of standard high-end amenities. From voice-activated navigation, to tri-zone automatic climate control, to 10-speaker audio system, you’ll enjoy what both models bring to the table. However, there are dozens of features you’ll only find on the Porsche Macan. The 10.9-inch touchscreen with HD resolution is just the first of these.

One of the most impressive Macan features just might be Traffic Jam Assist. When your Alhambra speed is at or below 37 mph, this system gently applies steering inputs to keep you in your lane while maintaining a proper following distance behind the vehicle ahead of you. You’ll love having Traffic Jam Assist when you’re stuck in a frustrating gridlock, as it also tracks roadway signs and other vehicles as your drive.
